When it comes to mainstream coffee companies, the first iconic coffee chain that might come to mind is a certain green and white mermaid, but what about a Dutch windmill? If you’ve never had a Dutch Bros. beverage before, you’re missing out! The Oregon-based coffee chain has been in the coffee business for decades and has only grown in popularity as their unique take on coffee gains more fans around the country!
From blended and iced espresso drinks to energy drinks, smoothies, and more, this coffee chain has a lot to offer in terms of flavor and style. Whether you’re a seasoned Dutch Bros. fan looking for new ideas to try or you’re utterly new to Dutch Bros. and don’t know what to expect, this list will help you choose your next new favorite drink!
About Dutch Bros.
Dutch Bros. Coffee was founded in 1992 in Oregon with one mission in mind – to provide standout caffeinated drinks that would bring people together.
Today, they’re a rapidly expanding drive-thru coffee chain with locations all over the west coast of the United States, offering caffeine-loaded beverages to fans of all ages.
Their friendly drive-thru coffee shop experience and quirky sci-fi and retro beverage names give their brand a nostalgic, Americana feel.
What Kinds of Drinks Can You Get at Dutch Bros.?
Of course, the coffee experts at Dutch Bros. offer a range of caffeinated concoctions, from frozen coffee to cold brew and everything in between.
But the coffee isn’t where it ends. Dutch Bros. is also known for its Rebel energy drinks and lemonades, and they offer a range of kid-friendly, flavorful, and fruity drink combinations, as well!
While they do offer hot coffee drinks, they’re mainly famous for their frozen and iced drinks that are as delicious as they are beautiful! Most of their coffee drinks are available in hot, iced, or blended versions, and some can even be served nitro-infused!
Not only do they have a substantial menu filled with a variety of options, but there’s also a huge secret menu” full of recipes and customizations created by fans of specialty coffee. They do like to stay on the cutting edge of coffee trends.
What Makes Dutch Bros. Stand Out?
While their menu isn’t as expansive as other mainstream coffee chains, this popular coffee shop is great at what they do, and their offerings are not only delicious, they’re unique and able to bring fans back for more every time.
They don’t always focus on coffee, and many people go there specifically for the Rebel energy drink offerings.
Though they offer a plethora of specialty gourmet coffee recipes, they’re also a chain that offers lots of options for kids, which gives them a more “family-friendly” vibe than, say, Starbucks, which is mainly known to cater to teens and adults.
White Mocha Cold Brew
There’s a reason that cold brew has taken the coffee world by storm in the last few years, and you’ll see why when taking a sip of this amazing drink!
Not only do you get the smooth and bright taste of a delicious cold brew, but you also get the sweetness of white chocolate! Your taste buds will thank you.
I also love that the ratio of coffee to chocolate hits just right so that the drink is sweet without overpowering the coffee flavor. You can get this drink as a standard cold brew or a nitro-infused option! And if the iced coffee option isn’t your style, consider getting this drink “toasted” (hot).
Golden Eagle Breve
If you’ve got a sweet tooth, look no further. Are you searching for a sweet, creamy, and indulgent drink that will make you feel like celebrating? There’s no better option than a Golden Eagle!
This beverage is nothing short of dessert in a cup, with delicious bold espresso and a combo of vanilla syrup and half-and-half topped with whipped cream topping and a decadent caramel drizzle!
I recommend drinking it hot since it’s a comforting option on a chilly day, but it’s available iced or blended as well (think a delicious caramel milkshake)! And ask for an extra shot to really kick it up a notch!
Vampire Slayer Rebel
Rebels are a line of iced beverages that go down like your favorite summer slushie. To make a Rebel, your barista will combine a can of Dutch Bros.’ proprietary energy drink called “Blue Rebel” with ice and a combination of flavored syrups.
Rebels are bright, colorful, and caffeinated beverages, and you can get them in a nearly endless array of flavors.
The Vampire Slayer, named because of its bright red color, is the ultimate sweet and sour drink option when you need an energy boost (at 80 milligrams of caffeine per serving, it’s about as caffeinated like a cup of coffee)!
You can get this drink iced or mixed (I definitely prefer the mixed version on a hot day). It’s up to you!
Picture Perfect Dutch Freeze
So what exactly is a “Dutch Freeze”? If a Dutch Bros. Dutch Frost is essentially a milkshake, then the Dutch Freeze is a coffee drink that kicks it up a notch! Ice is added to the coffee, and the whole drink is blended into a light and almost fluffy consistency (sort of like a Frappuccino at Starbucks).
Caramel and chocolate flavors combine to create this Picture Perfect beverage, just one in a whole lineup of Dutch Freezes to try!
Not only does this delicious drink taste fantastic, but the blend of espresso also provides a quick pick-me-up, while the blend of caramel sauce and chocolate drizzle on the inside of the cup elevates this beverage from an everyday drink to a work of art!
Enjoy this delicious blended beverage year-round!
Iced Grand Canyon OG
This is a drink you’re not going to find on the Dutch Bros. regular menu, but you’ll be glad you found out about it anyway! It will take your iced coffee habit to a new level.
The Iced Grand Canyon OG is essentially the “Cookie” breve beverage that you see on their regular menu, with dark chocolate sauce added. It boasts an amazing combination of flavors, including white chocolate, dark chocolate, and macadamia nut syrups and sauces.
Not only that, the coffee in this drink is paired with chocolate milk rather than regular milk! The result is a drink that tastes like your grandmother’s freshly baked cookies (no, we’re not kidding). It’s a sweet and oh-so-satisfying way to make any day feel just a little bit more special!
The White Chocolate Annihilator
The Annihilator is a fantastic mix of chocolatey and nutty flavors that’s never too overpowering or sweet.
Combining the strong coffee flavor of espresso (brewed from a blend of three beans to create its signature taste) with half-and-half and a delicious chocolate macadamia nut syrup, this is one drink on this list you’ve got to try!
One of the best features of this drink is the texture – imagine a delicious iced coffee topped with pillowy marshmallow fluff or a thick and indulgent sweet cream foam.
The result is velvety and smooth. While it can be served hot, iced, or blended, we recommend you get it blended to enjoy the thick milkshake-esque texture and taste!
Nitro Cold Brew
Low calorie and high in caffeine! What else could you ask for? Oh, you want a smooth and creamy texture and a not-too-sweet finish? The Dutch Bros. Nitro Cold Brew has you covered! Many places can make a nitrogen-infused cold brew, but very few stand out among the rest.
This drink strikes a perfect balance between bright and bold coffee flavors and subtle sweetness with no added sweeteners.
The best feature of a Nitro Cold Brew is the texture. By adding nitrogen to the dark coffee as it leaves the tap, microbubbles are created that give the coffee a pleasant and velvety texture that goes down smooth and mellow.
If you’re a coffee fiend looking for a caffeine boost with no time to fuss around with flavorings or creamy milkshake concoctions, you’ll love this cold brew!
White Chocolate Dutch Frost
This chocolatey coffee drink isn’t as flashy as some of the other frozen drink choices on the menu, and you may be wondering if it’s even really that good. The answer is an absolute yes!
If you’re looking for a super-sweet and indulgent coffee drink that feels more like ice cream than coffee, you’ve found it.
You’ll feel like you’re indulging in a creamy white chocolate milkshake (which is exactly what a frosted beverage is) with this combination of white chocolate sauce and whipped cream!
Keep in mind this may not be the chocolate drink for you if you want to taste your coffee. But don’t let the overwhelming sweetness stop you, and remember to ask for a healthy portion of whipped cream and a chocolate drizzle on top, just to make it that much more of a treat!
Flap Jack Breve
Are you craving breakfast while on the go? What if you could have the delicious and sweet flavors of a stack of pancakes right in your coffee cup? Enter the Flap Jack Breve, a menu item that fans are head-over-heels for.
Mixed with half-and-half instead of milk, it’s a rich and decadent way to start your morning, that’s for sure!
Enjoy flavors like white chocolate sauce, vanilla, and salted caramel syrup mixed and balanced with rich and bold espresso, then topped with whipped cream and a salted caramel drizzle.
What more could you ask for? And as if it can’t get any better, you can order this super-sweet drink as sugar-free as possible, so it’s less of a guilty pleasure if that’s your thing.
Dutch Crunch Breve with White Coffee
Strawberry and hazelnut are the standout flavors in this beverage. It’s a unique flavor combination that works because the nutty and fruity flavors balance out the deep coffee flavor.
If you love coffee or want to get a burst of energy, but you’re not craving the taste of coffee, this is the drink for you! And since the milk in this drink is actually half-and-half, it’s much creamier and richer than a standard roasted coffee drink.
If you don’t prefer white coffee, you can still get it with regular coffee, and keep in mind that you can get it in iced, blended, or hot versions, too! The iced coffee version is like a refreshing milkshake on a warm day, but the hot beverage is an excellent choice if you want a comfort drink!
White Zombie Mocha
Don’t let the name fool you. This caffeinated concoction will give you an extra burst of energy and life! It’s a favorite secret menu recipe, so you won’t find it on the regular Dutch Bros. menu.
If you love a good mocha, consider a white chocolate mocha instead, since white chocolate makes a great base to combine with other flavors.
This beverage combines chocolate milk, white chocolate, and mocha flavorings to create a rich and indulgent refreshment. You can get this drink iced, hot, blended, or sugar-free. The choice is yours!
If you think there’s nothing like biting into a gooey, chocolatey Snickers bar when you need a mid-day pick-me-up, you’ll love this decadent and sugary offering from Dutch Bros.
Something about the ratio of flavorings balances out perfectly with the espresso and steamed milk and makes this drink work! With rich flavors of caramel, hazelnut, and dark chocolate, this drink tastes just like a liquid snickers bar!
This drink is served hot, iced, or blended, so pick your favorite option and enjoy! And don’t worry about the sugar. You can get this drink sugar-free if you prefer (could it get any better?).
Christmas Morning Chai
This list wouldn’t be complete without a fantastic seasonal option! If there’s one drink that tastes like Christmas in a cup, it’s the rightly named Christmas Morning Chai.
The spiciness of the specialty chai tea blend is balanced out by the sweetness of the white chocolate and the richness of the coffee.
Top it with a dusting of cinnamon, nutmeg, and whipped cream, and you’ve got a delicious drink that will take you straight back to your childhood! If you like Starbucks chai latte, you’re going to love the Christmas Morning Chai.
Another thing I love about this drink is how it’s made with half-and-half instead of milk. If you’re a chai lover and want something rich and indulgent, you couldn’t do a lot better than this festive option! It comes blended, iced, or hot, so you can have your Christmas experience the way you like it.
